Unprotected sex: Whenever you have unprotected sex, you could be pregnant. Because it sounds like you had period after your unprotected sex, this would ordinarily lead us to conclude that you are not pregnant. However, it is not impossible that you are pregnant (particularly if you have irregular cycles). Take a home pregnancy test and schedule a visit with your OB. if u don't want a baby, discuss contraception.
